This is a story about firsts—love, hate and agony.
Olivia Taylor’s life turned upside down when she found out her mother was moving into her boyfriend’s home. The glitch? The boyfriend had a son named Greyson—the guy she loathed more than anything.
Greyson Edwards was your typical arrogant self-entitled jerk. He loved to taunt and tease Olivia. But the more time they got to spend together, the more complicated things became.
Will these two stubborn folks ever figure things out?
Will they let themselves feel what was truly boiling underneath the angst and unveil the passion that’s only a mere kiss away?
If you follow my reviews at all, you know I’m a sucker for a free e-book. And so far, for the most part, I’ve been (mostly) pleasantly surprised. (See Qualify and A Hidden Fire.) But this book, not so much.
The premise of the story intrigued me, but the execution was, frankly, terrible. With grammar, tense, and spelling issues, it could have used some heavy handed editing. What started out as not bad got worse as it went on. There was absolutely no structure to the plot. The characters were all ridiculous and wishy-washy. And the parents? The parents were nearly nonexistent to these high school aged characters.
There was a LOT of sex. Honestly, this book seemed like an excuse to write a lot of sex scenes. But let’s call a spade a spade. For me, it was even too much for a new adult. With a poor plot and all sex, I’d label this more an erotica.
I did actually finish this in the hopes it would redeem itself. But overall, this was too poorly written and too unbelievable. I cannot in good conscience recommend this.
